Leicester City star Riyad Mahrez has reportedly attracted the interest of Arsenal and Barcelona following his stellar performances in the Premier League this season with the Foxes.
The 24-year-old has netted four goals in Leicester’s unbeaten start to the season, and Daily Star reports the Algerian has gained the interest of both Arsenal and Barcelona.
According to the report, the interested clubs are expected to make a move for Mahrez in January, but the player’s agent says his client is happy to remain at the Claudio Ranieri lead Foxes.
“Riyad is very happy at Leicester and he just signed a new contract at the club last month,” Kamel Bengougam told ESPN, as reported by Daily Star.
“Riyad is not thinking about the rumours and is focused on his season with Leicester and wants to continue his fine form.”
Leicester currently sit second on the Premier League table, four points behind the table-topping Manchester City.
The Foxes take on the struggling Stoke City at the Britannia on Sunday.
